This morning, a janitor at PS 91 in East Flatbush, Brooklyn was arrested and charged with rape, sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child after allegedly attacking an 8-year-old female student in a basement bathroom at the school.

Police said the victim claimed Francis Evelyn, 58, had committed sexual acts with her more than four times between Feb. 1 and March 9. Evelyn has worked at the school for 20 years, reports NY1, and has no criminal history. He’s been remanded on $150,000 bail. Some alarmed parents are threatening to pull their kids out of school, saying if the girl hadn’t come forward, no one would have found out about the crime.
